Pilot Season Week 3 Overview

We’ve had lots of Quahog cancellation fears in years gone by, so now it’s time for the Griffins to prepare for the future with some new auditions as Pilot Season comes to Quahog.


EVENT ENDS

7th August 2019 at 3PM PDT

This is a 3 week event!!!

Due to the delayed launch on Week 2 TinyCo said this week has been made easier. I’m just looking at and it doesn’t seem particularly easy.

You can see the countdown timer for the event and other details by clicking on the Event Info Icon at the bottom of your screen.


ADDICTS ANNOUNCEMENTS & INFORMATION

***Post is complete***

***The launch of last week’s content was again delayed by around 24 hours, TinyCo have said that this weeks completion requirements have been adjusted to reflect that time we lost but as I say I’m just looking at it and not sure it’s much easier***

***Can I remind readers that I use the clams kindly provided to me by TinyCo to pull event information for you, but I do this in a way that allows me to not only be ahead of the average player but still actually play the game a little. If you’ve got the beta testing fast forward feature in your games and are rushing through the week’s content then I’m sorry but you may find yourself ahead of my information at times***


CURRENT APP VERSION

Version 1.91.0


NOTICEABLE CHANGES

For some there’s a fast forward feature to speed up tasks, to do this you’ll watch videos. I can’t give any more information as I don’t have this in my game to test, but it’s Beta and according to last week’s poll only about half of our  players have it, whether more will get it, or whether some will lose it, well we’ll need wait and see.


GLITCHES & ISSUES

The duplicate and triplicate characters glitch continues. I know I keep saying this but believe me TinyCo are working to try get this sorted, it’s just not a simple fix. I know some of you are getting frustrated but they have to fix each game manually hence time is taking, I can assure you TinyCo hasn’t forgot about you.

Reappearing Questlines – either redo them or request TinyCo remove them, they don’t impact playing thankfully.

Game crashing on older devices, and those with older/outdated software continues, it may be they can no longer handle the game. What I can tell you is if your device runs on 2gb of ram you may struggle with crashing, if it has less than 2gb ram it probably won’t run at all.

Disappearing materials – please message TinyCo regarding this.

MAIN QUESTLINE

Pilot Season – 10 Clam reward for completion

My advice this week is concentrate on unlocking Jail HousecLois, ignore the Questline as to complete it will see you having to defeat the Disapproving Bystander to 5x, those Bibles would be better used on attacking the Martial Arts Nerd. Remember the reward for full completion is just 10 Clams.

Martial arts nerd

The Martial Arts Nerd will trigger as soon as you start week 3 of the event. This is your Main Boss this week. You will “Bribe” him with Bibles or Cinderblock to defeat him to the highest level possible and obtain the most prizes.

 Cinderblock (Uncommon) –  Get from Stewie Regearse His Lines, Rambo Lois Shoot Through Cinderblocks, Nerd Chris Conduct An Experiment, Gay Couple Brian Decorate His Garden, Cinderblock Shrine

 Bible (Uncommon) –  Get from Gold Suit Lois Flip a Through The Pages, Evening Prince Read A Passage, Statue Of The Good Book, Nerd Chris Reject Religion

You’ll see him wandering your sidewalks with a timer above his head.

Simply tap him and you’ll see the level requirement bribe and rewards. Collect the Bubles or Cinderblock necessary for the bribe then hit, eh, “BRIBE“.

Here is the bribe costs and rewards and rewards from a 1x to 5x streak in my game. The amounts of the item needed will be the same in your game, but the item may differ, i.e. 1X will require either  1 Buble rather than 1 Cinderblock.

1X – Requires 1 Bible
Rewards – 25 Theatre Masks  & 1 Cigarettes

2X – Requires 3 Cinderblock
Rewards – 35 Theatre Masks & 2 Cigarettes

3X – Requires 5 Bibles
Rewards – 45 Theatre Masks & 4 Cigarettes

4X – Requires 7 Cinderblock
Rewards – 55 Theatre Masks & 6 Cigarettes

5X – Requires 9 Bibles
Rewards – 65 Theatre Masks & 8 Cigarettes

You have 24hrs to hit the highest level before the Martial Arts Nerd will rest (cool down). His cool down is 2 hours.

Please note when he returns he will be back at 1x unless you’ve used clams to wake him at the level he went into cool down at.


Undead warthogs

These are the little baddies again this week of the event. Like previous weeks you’ll find them wandering your sidewalks.

Now with these you can clear 4 with 1 Smoke Bomb so my advice is to put down just a single it 2 pieces of Sidewalk and the Undead Warthogs will gather in that one small area making it easy to clear 4 with each Smoke Bomb. Once you have at least 1 Smoke Bomb tap an Undead Warthog and then place the target over them  and Fire.

And here’s a reminder where you can get those Smoke Bombs.

 Smoke Bomb (Uncommon) –  Get from clearing Icebergs.

The rewards you get will depend on how many Undead Warthigs you clear.

Per Undead Warthog Cleared:
1 Pen (Chance)


CleariNg icebergs MINI-GAME

You’ll still need to do this to collect Smoke Bombs now, so keep going and to maximise your return read the post I like to below.
